Gilford, Patti

Gilford details the lucrative market available to artists through the route of art consultants, discussing how she finds and places artwork with both private and corporate clients and collectors.

“The dialogue, the intervals, the way that you approach the art, the site lines and the lighting are all very important to me. I want the art to be featured and I want that work to be maximized in terms of its placement. It also has to work with me in terms of integrity in the making, the uniqueness.”
